    ‘90210’ actor Jason Priestley has just sold his house in the 91602 (Toluca Lake, that is) for a $140,000 loss.

    The 90’s star who played Brandon Walsh in the cult TV hit ‘Beverly Hills 90210,’ paid $2,140,000 for this 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom,  3,266 square foot estate in May 2007, just two months before he and his wife Naomi welcome their first child.

    Now, just as he is about to release his memoir, property records show that the actor has sold off the home for $2 million, losing $140,000 on the deal. He first listed the property for $2.1 million in 2011 before taking it off the market and relisting it for $2,099,000 in February 2014.

    Priestley’s just-sold home in the heart of Toluca Lake has a spacious foyer with a dramatic staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. The living room features a stone fireplace and French doors, and nearby, an oversized family room features built-ins, and opens to the gorgeous formal dining room and the covered patio. The gourmet kitchen has an island, lots of cabinet space, a walk-in pantry, and breakfast area.

    The master bedroom oasis has a fireplace, cathedral ceilings and walk-in closet. The private master bath has a stand-alone tub and glass steam shower. The second floor also features two bedrooms with en suite baths, and an office area with custom cabinets.

    The backyard is perfect for entertaining with covered patio, landscaped gardens and gorgeous pool and spa.

    Craig Strong of the John Aaroe Group represented both Priestley and the buyer in this deal.

      $790,000

      Nearly a year after ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Lena Headey claimed she had “less than $5″ in her bank account, the actress, who plays Queen Cersei on the hit show, has just purchased a dated fixer-upper in Sherman Oaks, CA for $790,000.

      Property records show the deal for the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1,808 square foot home closed on April 4, 2014.

      In April 2013, Headey opened up about the reality of her financial situation in legal docs related to her 2012 divorce filing from husband Peter Loughran. In the docs, she was petitioning for half of the couple’s $46,000 2011 tax return, saying she needed the money asap to make ends meet for her and their 2 year-old son. The media reports were shocking, since many people figured she was well-compensated for her role as a main character on one of the most popular shows currently on TV.

      Her precarious financial situation was exacerbated when she sold her former home in Los Angeles‘ Laurel Canyon-area at a loss. That home was purchased by Headey and her ex-husband for $1,685,000 in June 2008 and sold for $1,349,000 in late 2012.

      Her new home isn’t much to look at (by Hollywood standards), but it does have potential. Located in one of the best neighborhoods Sherman Oaks has to offer, the traditional home has a mid-century modern twist and sits on a beautiful and quiet tree-lined street.

      Spacious, bright and airy, with a good floor plan and great ‘bones,’ Headey’s new home has a decent-sized kitchen that conveniently opens to the family room for easy entertaining.

      A large master suite has ample closets and a private bath.

      The backyard has a lovely pool, covered patio and gardens.

      Ben DI Benedetto of Keller Williams Studio City represented the sellers (who were the original owners) and Zoe Rudolph of John Aaroe Group was Headey’s real estate agent.

        Celebrity Real Estate Losers

        The housing market is tricky. It’s up, it’s down, it’s up again…and then it’s back down. We’re seeing a nice recovery in the overall market right now, but that doesn’t mean everyone is making money on their homes – even celebrities.

        Let’s take a look at 9 big-name celebrities that lost some serious cash money when they sold their luxury real estate in the last year.

Before the moving trucks could even get in the front gate, the duo had split. Perry then had to face a financial heartbreak when she had to sell the home for $5.65. After fees and closing costs, she lost more than a million dollars on the home.
